Former instrumental progressive metal group Intervals has introduced a singer into the fray. Former The HAARP Machine vocalist, Mike Semesky, has become the band's first singer. After putting out two EPs (The Space Between and In Time), Intervals is set to release its debut LP sometime this spring. The band will tour Europe and America with Protest the Hero and The Safety Fire

Personally, I think the vocals add a nice element to the band's arsenal. What do you think? Stream the new track "Ephemeral" in the comments.

"The Beyond the redshift festival in London on may the 10th will be a very special show for Cult Of Luna. It will mark the end of an era and after that we will slowly disappear before we reappear again in some form in some indefinite future. Because of that Klas will join us on stage for the last time and we will play a whole lot of old songs which we haven't played for years or ever.

We are not quitting. 2013 have been a very active year for us and neither do we want or think it is good to continue in that pace. We will not be a band that put out an album every 18-24 month anymore. We did that for almost 10 years when we were younger and were able to focus more on the music. After "Beyond the redshift" we might do a festival or two but after that we have nothing planned. Maybe we'll release another album next year or maybe in a decade, we honestly don't know. Sooner or later we will return in one form or another. Cult Of Luna will not die."
